FabBlab said...

You won't believe it, but as a kid I actually attempted a few horse riding classes. It was compulsory in my earstwhile school, I think.
Anyway, got creeped out of my mind and never got onto one until my friend V's 5th grade horse riding birthday party.
Yeah. Good times.
Gorgeous photos, but then what's new? :)

The Anthology said...

Yes! It does make me want to grab a riding crop. I haven't been horseback riding in 1,000 years and everything about equestrian style makes me desperate to go again. Or at least go buy a pair of riding pants.

Monica said...

Horses are certainly one of the most fashionable animals out there. All of these pictures are gorgeous.

Erika said...

I have a thing for carousels and bright colors; thus, the Miles Aldridge thrills me.

Congratulations Pretty Pink Rat! :)

The Haute-Shopper said...

Love these horse editorials! I used to go horseback riding myself, but haven't don't it in ages. There's nothing more elegant than the equestrian look, though if I could, I wouldn't mind some of these outfits to ride around in ;-) Have a great weekend my dear!
